What a difference a year can make: Fueled by the pandemic, more consumers turned to digital viewing options available to them at home and on mobile devices. This accelerated the trend towards streaming and led to a dramatic increase in the number of streaming services — and in ad dollars going to OTT and CTV. As a result, the market has become saturated and the push — and battle — for subscriptions and advertisers, is heating up in the US and internationally.
OTTxSCIENCE, held on October 26-27, 2021, presented the latest research-based insights about viewers’ use of streaming services, providers’ strategies to reach and captivate those viewers, and the role of advertising on CTV/OTT platforms. Attendees learned about the evolving AVOD vs. SVOD landscape, advances in measurement as well as fraud detection.
